I’ve been depressed for a very long time (since around the age of 11-12, i’m now 23).
Back then I used to just bottle it all up inside me. My depression would turn to anger, and I would lash out at anyone. I would feel so much hatred that I would bully people. The thing is, I had no reason to be depressed, not one single reason. I would just feel extremely low without anything actually triggering it off.
I’ve learnt to control my depression as i’ve got older. I no longer have anger issues, I just feel really sad 90% of the time. No one knows it, or even notices it. I do my best to put on a happy face.
Anyway, lately sh*t has really hit the fan for me. My dad has been diagnosed with cancer, my home is getting repossessed, and now my family is moving to the other side of the country. I’m doing my best to keep strong for my family, especially my mum and younger sister. But, i’m mentally unstable as it is, I think i’m on a verge of a complete mental breakdown, which would be the worse thing to happen at a time like this, my family need me to be strong for them.
Does anyone know what I should do?
